This is a nice section of The Bund in Shanghai. The building in the centre with the clock towers the Customs House. To the left of that is the dome of the The Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank while on this side there is a lovely little white deco building, the former Bank of Communications. Closest to the camera is another bank building, the Central China Bank. Finally sitting in the background is the modern Bund Financial Centre with it's illuminated crown.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
